Does Madame Malkin’s sell a lot of robes and other clothing items? I was wondering how busy it is on a busy day. Too, do they hem the robes on-site... customers must stand on a box etc.?
Anyone have insight?
I think they sell a lot. I do not think they hem, but they will help someone dress up, gather all the needed accessories, let you know what a student needs.
I think when there is one of those wet/cold days, sales really go up....I think that is how my daughter ended up with a robe and I feel I saw a lot more robes out that day.
I guess the big draw is that the robe has a wand pocket, so it makes it far easier to have a place to put that interactive stick they sell.
But to me, they do play up on the whole dress up thing, they make it a little like the Princess make over thing up the road, save they do it with shoppers as opposed to pre purchased packages....but they will put you on a box, in front of a mirror, and grab everything in your size that has your school colors on it.
